In June 1967, a demonstration in Berlin against the state visit of the Shah of Persia descends into chaos when baton-wielding police apparently charge the protesters, causing crowds to spill onto the streets. One young man is needlessly shot and killed by police, galvanizing mounting support for the anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist student movement. Left-wing journalist Ulrike Meinhof, who writes stirring reports on the stormy political climate, becomes disillusioned with the student movement’s inability to affect lasting change and aligns herself instead with Andreas Baader and his girlfriend Gudrun Ensslin to form the Red Army Faction (RAF).
